Garden 2015 has Started

It started on February 5th with the first seeds going into the trays!

I planted 18 New Girl Tomatoes, 18 Celebrity tomatoes, 9 Nero di Toscana cabbage, aka dinosaur kale, and 9  romaine Lettuce.  This was very exciting!  I have never grown kale before.  I was however a little heart-broken when the package said it prefers weather below 75 degrees.  I’m not sure it is going to the like Arkansas’ summer.  Oh, how I dream of having garden fresh greens and tomatoes ripe at the same time!  My romaine usually bolts right before I start to get tomatoes.  Oh well, seeds are planted and I may go search my garden catalogs for some Summer lettuce to add in the next round of seed starts.

This morning I awoke to a wonderful surprise!  Sprouts!

Let the gardening season begin!  What are you growing?  Do you have any recommendations for lettuce that will grow in the Arkansas Summer heat?

    YES! Let the gardening begin. Good luck with this years gardening. We’re still in the process of narrowing down the seed selection. On the list for certain: Black Krim tomatoes, Boule D’Or Melons. Cheers, Ben

  3. I was just going through my seeds today. I usually start my tomatoes march 1. It seem like spring is already here but we know better, don’t we?

I took the college girl a little studying inspiration! You can find me on the couch, forever!  Outside is scary! Found this on my how today! I'll be playing inside from now on! What to do with all those extra jalapeno peppers!  Stuff with cream cheese and wrap in bacon!  Top with a little BBQ sauce and roast!  Yum!
